Ski Film from Vital Films with Torin Yater-Wallace

Director Matt Hobbs of Vital Films and Aerial Filmworks worked together on the “Days To Come” ski film featuring Torin Yater-Wallace. Filmed in Aspen, the project used 60p images from the Cineflex V14HD in combination with Phantom and Sony F3 ground cameras. Doug Sheffer of DBS Helicopters was the amazing helicopter pilot following the athletes through the half-pipe on a bright sunny Aspen morning.

Susan Dempster of Aerial Filmworks provided the final color-grading at our in-house edit suite.
